OCZ Trion 150 Budget SSD On Linux
With FS-Mark, the Trion 150 was competing between the 120GB Intel SSDs.
Lastly, with the PostgreSQL database benchmark, the Trion 150 was continuing to perform between the Intel 530 and Intel 535 SSDs.
The OCZ Trion 150 is certainly not the fastest 120GB SATA 3.0 SSD we have tested, but it certainly does deliver great value. The 120GB version for around $50 USD isn't much of a bargain compared to other SSDs, but if you're in need of 240GB+ is where the real value is at with a 480GB SSD being available for purchase for just $140 USD. If you want a high performance drive for daily use, though you're better off with a more expensive model like the Samsung 850 EVO. Within the budget 120GB SSD space, the SanDisk drive was also competing well. If you are interested in taking a look at the different OCZ Trion 150 models, stop by Amazon.com.
